Samsung has announced its latest Windows Phone 7.5 handset this morning called the Omnia M. The handset features a 4-inch Super AMOLED display, a 1GHz single-core processor, and “top-notch media capabilities.” It will make its debut in Europe before rolling out to other regions later.
The Omnia M appears to be Samsung’s answer to low-budget devices like the Nokia Lumia 710, rather than a flagship Windows Phone handset. The Korean company has chosen to focus on its “wide array of social connectivity options” rather than its specifications.
In addition to that 4-inch display, the Omnia M boasts a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and an LED flash, a front-facing VGA camera, HSDPA connectivity, 4GB of internal storage, and 384MB of RAM. As with most Samsung smartphones, it also ships with a number of Samsung apps and services, including AllShare, Music Hub, Smart DJ, and ChatON.
JK Shin, Samsung’s President of IT & Mobile Communications, believes the Omnia M offers enhanced performance and social options:
“Mobile consumers increasingly carry and share a large part of their lives through their phones. They are looking for phones that combine individual style with the ability to consume and share all kinds of content across their ever-growing social networks. The Omnia M meets all these demands, with the enhanced performance and social options afforded by Windows Phone and Samsung services.”
Samsung has not announced a release date for the Omnia M, or confirmed pricing, but we’re expecting carriers to reveal these details soon.
